Recent studies have shown that vertebral mis alignments may be a cause for autism in children. The idea is that any compression or poor alignment of the spine can potentially cause damage or disruption in neurological and mental function.
In this particular study, a three year old girl was suffering from intense symptoms of autism, including sever, relenting headaches, vomiting, sleeplessness, and acid reflux.
After her chiropractor made some key adjustments to her spine, all of her symptoms disappeared and the patient was able to go off of all her medications. Her mother, in so many words, claims that her daughter is a completely normal acting, happy little girl now. The study is so promising that experts are calling for more controlled studies on the topic in a controlled environment.
